Hacker group Anonymous Sudan published a post in its Telegram channel, in which it claims that it managed to hack Microsoft and get access to the database containing logins and passwords of more than 30 million accounts. The Arab hackers put this data up for sale to anyone interested for $50,000.

As proof of their penetration, they attached a sample of 100 logins and passwords, but their authenticity is confirmed.

Microsoft representatives, in turn, said that they see no evidence of hacking and data leakage. "We see no evidence that our customer data has been accessed or compromised," the company said in its response.

Anonymous Sudan is a hacker group that specializes in DDoS attacks against Western organizations. In the past, it has acknowledged its connection to the pro-Russian hacker group Killnet. In early June, Anonymous Sudan conducted a successful DDoS attack on several Microsoft services, including Azure, Outlook and OneDrive, causing them to crash.

Earlier, a vulnerability was discovered in a popular Microsoft service that allows users' computers to be hacked.
At the moment, it has not been resolved with an official update, Microsoft notified. The solution to the problem was found only one, it is an actual Microsoft security update posted by a competent developer from Spain.
